Body found near field identified as missing Payette man

PAYETTE - A man found dead near an irrigated field in Payette County has been identified as 43-year-old Jeff Brenner, who went missing over a week ago.

A rancher discovered Brenner's body Tuesday morning in a field near the intersection of Big Willow and Dry Creek roads, the Payette County Sheriff's Office said. Brenner's pickup truck was found in that same area on Friday.

Brenner was last seen on Monday, May 29 before leaving to reportedly go turkey hunting with a friend.

His vehicle was discovered Friday on Dry Creek Road near Little Willow Road in northeastern Payette County. Friends, family and deputies searched that area from the ground and by air, but were unable to locate Brenner.

So far, there has been no word on a possible cause of death.
